* In ''VideoGame/Bayonetta2'', the demon Alraune is absolutely enraged to see that Bayonetta's contract is Madama Butterfly and goes on a rant about how much she detests Butterfly, mentioning that even the "passing millenia" did not quench her hatred for her. What Madama Butterfly did to Alraune is anyone's guess. Lampshaded by Bayonetta:
-->'''Bayonetta:''' I don't know what you did to piss her off, but whatever it was, ''nice''.

** Another early one (and her first appearance, natch) has her arrive to bail her friends out after a HopelessBossFight, carrying two {{Plot Coupon}}s and dragging the unconscious mouse/rat/[[{{Pokemon}} Pikachu]]-knockoff thing that had them behind her. The villain tells her not to be so proud she beat the items out of a rat, to which Iris Heart replies she didn't just take them, they were payment for services rendered. It isn't revealed what happened between her transformation and arrival, but from [[BastardGirlfriend what we]] [[{{Dominatrix}} find out]] [[ExtremeOmnisexual about her]], the implications are... unsettling.

* ''MetroidPrime 3: Corruption'' had the Horus Rebellion that was mentioned by two Federation members. Nothing else was mentioned about it besides the fact that it was apparently as bad as the events of the game.

* ''VideoGame/MoshiMonsters'':
** Apparently, one time, someone asked the villain Sweet Tooth their gender and didn't come back with the answer. All we know is that they were the last person to ask, they're still hospitalized, and they're "wearing a gobstopper".
** When Dr C Fingz, a psychic creature, suggests that he save the day by [[ItMakesSenseInContext singing a "Cosmic Harmony"]], the others say it is too dangerous because of what happened last time, which is never revealed.

* In every ''[[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Elder Scrolls]]'' game except ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', the player starts out as a prisoner. In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena'', ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', it's never explained what the crime was that landed you there. ''Oblivion'' even has a dialog option where the PlayerCharacter (that deserves repeating: the ''character you play'') doesn't know either.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' never tells you outright, but it looks very much like you were a victim of mistaken identity on the part of the Imperial Legion. It seems they were rounding up Stormcloaks at Skyrim's border and you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now the NoodleIncident becomes why you were crossing the border into Skyrim.[[note]]If you play as a Dark Elf, it is assumed by your captors that you are a refugee. If you are a Nord, you're assumed to be simply returning home.[[/note]]
** Speaking of Skyrim, the "A Night to Remember" Daedric quest relies heavily on this trope, as you traverse half the map trying to figure out just what the hell happened when you were blackout drunk. All you get out of the [=NPCs=] is that it was [[NoodleImplements something involving]] a magical staff, a wedding to a hagraven, and some poor farmer's goat in Rorikstead. Even going all the way through the quest never fully reveals what occurred.
** Again in Skyrim, a particular radiant conversation amongst Dark Brotherhood members seems applicable: "But really. A horker, some twine, three wood elves, and a hatchet? Points for creativity, if nothing else."
** ''Arena'' does indicate why you are in prison: you were a member of the Imperial court in the way of Jagar Tharn's plans. This still leaves open ''what'' crime he put you in prison for, and whether he framed you or took advantage of something you'd done.

This still leaves open ''what'' crime he put you in prison for, and whether he framed you or took advantage of something you'd done.[[/note]], though ''Skyrim'' does at least suggest that you were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

** The series has M'aiq the Lair, a recurring EasterEgg LegacyCharacter. M'aiq is a known a FourthWallObserver (and [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Leaner]] and ''[[BreakingTheFourthWall Breaker]]'') who [[AuthorAvatar voices the opinions]] of the series' creators and developers, largely in the form of {{Take That}}s, to both the [[TakeThatAudience audience]] (given the ''ES'' UnpleasableFanbase) and isn't above above [[SelfDeprecation taking some]] at [[TakeThatUs Bethesda itself]]. He also has a number of comments about various noodle incidents he has been involved with, most of which are equal parts bizarre and funny. For example, in ''Skyrim'', he mentions that he was once ''[[YourSoulIsMine Soul Trapped]]'' and very much did not appreciate the experience.

* In ''Videogame/DeadlyRoomsOfDeath'': The City Beneath, Beeethro encounters a guy in the City dealing with the fallout of one of these. He tries to explain, but Beethro cuts him off when it becomes apparent that the story will be long and boring. Anyway, the result was that this guy had to nail every chair in the Rooted Empire to the floor, because of a horrible accident involving two serpents, an orb, and a tar baby.

** ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'' includes a long scene where Guybrush tries to get the Idol of Many Hands from the governor's mansion, almost all of which takes place outside of camera range, though the action prompts still pop up, saying things like "Hypnotize quarrelsome rhinoceros", and "Use staple remover on tremendous dangerous-looking yak".
